Strong #UNIONS = Stronger Communities
The labor movement was the principal force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress. Out of its bold struggles, economic and social reform gave birth to unemployment insurance, old-age pensions, government relief for the destitute and, above all, new wage levels that meant not mere survival but a tolerable life. The captains of industry did not lead this transformation; they resisted it until they were overcome. When in the thirties the wave of union organization crested over the nation, it carried to secure shores not only itself but the whole society.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

Remember this name: State Policy Network.
SPN is an umbrella organization for more than 100 anti-union, anti-worker affiliates. SPN’s goal, in its own words, is to “defund and defang” public service labor unions like AFSCME. Why? Because when unions are strong, SPN’s billionaire funders have less power over their employees and our country.
Soon, you may hear from representatives of these groups who will try to trick you into giving up your rights and hurting your pay and benefits by dropping your union membership.

In September 2016, the Mayor and Council approved a new policy which covers City employees’ ability to participate in Phoenix Mayor and Council elections. A.R. 2.16 allows City employees to privately express their political opinions in City of Phoenix elections.
Examples of what the policy now allows includes posting private opinions on personal or non-governmental social media accounts. Displaying yard signs on non-governmental property, signing nominating petitions, or communicating with another person or group of people regarding City elections when the employee does not do so in an official City capacity.
While the new policy allows private political expression for City employees, there are still certain restrictions to be aware of. City employees may NOT: Use any official City authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the results of an election. Participate in the management or affairs of any City candidates’ campaign for Mayor of Phoenix or Phoenix City Council including, but not limited to, soliciting or making financial contributions to candidates. Display bumper stickers and posters on City vehicles or display bumper stickers, posters, literature, buttons, or other campaign material on City property or at their individual work sites. Use an official city title or designate employment with the City in political advertisements, endorsements, or speeches.
Now is the time to get involved and get informed on the people running for Council and Mayor
(Mayor seat vacated by Greg Stanton and the Council seats of District 5 and District 8 which both Council members are vying for the top spot as Mayor), lets get the word out to family and friends who reside in Phoenix. Remember that this is the opportunity for our voices to be heard, bring focus on the City employees (Working Families) who have dedicated to public service, bring innovative solutions to our City which will in turn help secure our future as well as our community's future. Let’s gear up and be ready for the call when the opportunity rises to meet these candidates and place your vote. (Graphics displays City Council District Map)

We would like to remind all members that if you sustain an injury on the job to make your initial visit with Concentra Medical Facility for a diagnosis, then make your second visit directly with your primary care physician for treatment. If you make a second visit to Concentra your case will be locked in with them as your primary physician for your injury. Concentra has historically sent employees back to work with restrictions. This also gives the City of Phoenix the right to place you in a light duty position for the duration of your injury. You must then comply with all of the City’s rules and regulations regarding attendance and call-in procedures. You could petition to The Industrial Commission of Arizona by submitting a request to change doctors, however, the process is lengthy and may not yield the results you are after. Some of our members have sustained injuries that should have had them out of work while getting the necessary treatment. Our members have had more success going to their own primary care physicians on the second visit while bypassing Concentra’s medical facilities. In doing so, they have receiving the proper diagnosis and more accurate treatment. If you find yourself in this situation, we recommend that you contact your Union Hall immediately for assistance and direction.
Across the country Americans are facing an out-of-balance economy that favors the wealthy while wages remain stagnant for everyone else. Working families are struggling to get ahead and public services are under attack. AFSCME PEOPLE, our Union’s political action fund, provides us with an opportunity to stand together to protect the benefits and rights we’ve won in our workplaces and in our communities. We must take an active role to elect politicians who advocate for issues that are important to working families, like the need to balance the economy, defend workers’ rights, secure workers’ benefits, invest in public services, and ensure a secure retirement for all. By contributing you can help elect local, state and federal candidates who will fight for us and the issues we care about the most. Call the hall we will be glad to assist you.
